The Sky 6 Pro - CCDSoft 5 link inoperable on replacement observatory computer

The Win XP desktop died after 10 years out in the observatory.  Replaced it with a newer good condition Win 7 machine on which The Sky 6 Pro and CCDSoft 5 are setup and running.  The Sky 6 Pro links just fine to the serial output on my Meade LX200 GPS, and the curser on the Sky's presentation screen moves with the scope as the scope is slewed.

I'm running CCDSoft 5 to control an ST8-XME and that part's running OK as well.  The problem is that the declination is not automatically set when guiding (and yes, I connect the Sky to the scope before doing a camera guide routine calibration).  Also coordinates are not being fed to the .fits images making astrometry a bit more tedious.

Am I missing a setting somewhere?
